Wednesday Zumba class was mostly fun. I only missed 3 songs while I sat on the floor and cried. Then, I rolled the knee pain away and was able to finish the rest of the class*.
Thursday, I bowled 2 games and then the pain hit, again. I did a mostly one-legged hop to my car and drove to my chiropractor appointment, where I learned about about my IT Band (Iliotibial Band). It’s not as sexy as it sounds but it is twice as painful as you can imagine.
(Oh, yeah. I’m just a font of IT knowledge, now.)
She taped me up and told me to leave the tape on for a week.
I was able to walk out of there and that made me feel good because of Rhinebeck on Saturday.
When I woke up this morning, the middle of my “blue seagull” had lifted off – this is heat activated tape, mind you – and I was in a mild panic. I raced over to the chiro’s office (closed on Friday’s) and caught her leaving the Friday Zumba class. Doc Rimbey is the sweetest person and she re-taped me, making me look even more cool than I did, before. (It’s my story and if I say I look cool, then I look cool!)
Perhaps a bit overdone with the reinforcing patches but, still, I can walk.
TAKE THAT, RHINEBECK CURSE!**
Victory is mine!***
*This simple rolling technique will also make you cry. Be forewarned.
**The Rhinebeck Curse has prevented me from getting there for, at least, 6 years. I have made plans every year. My Mom would drive here or I’d have a group ready to go and it always fell thru. Tomorrow I’m going with Jane on a local yarn store bus trip. I think I’ve conquered it!
***The picture tube on our flat screen just blew. That’ll teach me to have Premature Victorious Dancing (PVD).
